Celebrated artist Ysabel LeMay has gained international recognition for her hyper-collage panoramas. She uses a process that combines photographs to create the real world remixed to paradisal perfection, so vividly realized that one feels drawn to step into her immersive tableaux.

Since winning the New York KiptonART Rising Stars Program, LeMay’s work has seen more than 135 exhibitions around the globe and has been acquired for the corporate collections of Chevron, Bloomingdale’s, and Bacardi, and the permanent collections at the Museum of Photographic Arts and the Morris Museum. In 2013, LeMay participated in the Texas Biennial, and in 2015, she represented Texas at the fourth edition of Women to Watch in Washington, D.C.

In 2017, LeMay held a solo retrospective show at the Morris Museum in Morristown, New Jersey. In addition, she was commissioned by the U.S. Department of State’s Art in Embassies Program for the American Institute in Taiwan. She was a visiting instructor at the Santa Fe Photographic Workshop in New Mexico. Her work has been featured in several magazines.

Inspired by her world travels and work with shamans, her latest series launched in 2022. While her technique is high-tech, LeMay’s hyper collage process is instinctual and organic, allowing each piece to dictate its destiny. From a single, simple starting point — an image, a color, an emotion — she follows a meticulous process. After first isolating and extracting elements of her photos, LeMay then weaves them together into intricate compositions of resplendent beauty. LeMay has brought her hyper-collages to a place where they now serve as records of natural splendor perpetually in motion – as expressed by an artist who herself shows no interest in standing still.
